"Glenelg " Glenelg Tip by keeweechic

Glenelg, Adelaide: 5 reviews and 5 photos


Glenelg is a wonderful and very popular seaside area of Adelaide with white sandy beaches great for swimming but not great for surfing. Life Savers are on duty on the beach in their towers and there was a beach volley ball competition going on when we were there.

Along the foreshore is also a fun park, mini-golf and arcade games. On the serious side there are a number of old relics from the early days like the Old Gum Tree which makes the spot where proclamation of South Australia was read in 1836, the HMS Buffalo, along with historic buildings and of course great shopping. The only remaining tram line also runs from the city to Glenelg.
